Hot on the heels of a fantastic Summer Speedweekend, there is another blockbuster of championship action this coming weekend at Aghadowey Oval and Tullyroan Oval.

The main event on the programme will be the S McAfee & Son 2018 Stock Rods British Championship, which will see reigning champion Chris Lattka from Falkirk in Scotland make the journey across the Irish Sea to defend the title he won last season at his home Lochgelly circuit. He will face stiff opposition from the local aces who are on top form of late. Ahoghill’s Marc Morrell is the reigning World Champion in the formula, a title he won on the Aghadowey circuit in 2017, and he is sure to feature, whilst Kells ace Shane McMillan was second in the recent National Championship final and will be keen to move up to the top step of the podium.

Former World and European Champion Stevie McNiece from Enniskillen, Irish Champion Victor McAfee, NI Points Champion Jonny Cardwell and former National Champion Micky McFall are also set to be amongst the challengers, as well as Chris Hamill, Johny Gillespie, Ed Davis and Philip Wilson to name a few.

Alongside Lattka, the Scottish Challenge will include the UK’s leading lady racer Siobhan Martin and Gary Dean, whilst Eric Walker from Surrey, who joined Greer and McMillan on the National Championship podium, will lead a strong English challenge alongside Daniel Rea, Harry Sargent and Maison Waugh. Colm O’Sullivan and Owen McGrath will be the big threats from the Republic of Ireland for what will be a fast and ferocious championship event.

The ProStocks British Championship is also up for decision, with Coleraine’s Adam White putting his title on the line. He will be keen for a repeat win, but Glenavy duo Dan Shannon and Joe Largey, Portadown’s Steven Haugh and Bushmills brothers Lee and Dylan Booth will be sure to challenge. Scotland’s Paul Barron will lead the visitors for what is sure to be an action packed event with the bumpers put to full use, and he will be joined on the trip across the Irish Sea by Jack Cameron, Ian Christie, Jamie Brown and Scott Wilson.

The fastest cars on the local ovals, the National Hot Rods, will contest the latest round of the Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI, with any number of potential winners. British Champion John Christie, Ulster Champion Glenn Bell and NI Champion Adam Hylands will be amongst the favourites in the elite formula, with Shane Murray, former World Champion Adam Maxwell, Mark Heatrick, Jaimie McCurdy and Carl Sloan sure to be amongst the top places.

The inaugural Irish Open Championship for the Junior Productions, which will see the young local stars headed by Bleary’s Drew McKeown take on their Scottish counterparts will also be an enjoyable aspect of the programme, with the rough and tumble 1300 Stock Cars completing the programme.

The opening race of the packed programme, sponsored by S McAfee Car Sales and Service of Ballymena, leaves the Aghadowey Oval grid at 4.30pm on Saturday evening.

Action then switches to Tullyroan Oval on Sunday afternoon for day two of race action. The Stock Rods will be chasing the Tullyroan Challenge Cup whilst the ProStocks will be back in action for their Irish Open Championship.

The Ninja Karts will be racing for the coveted Keir Millar Memorial Trophy currently held by Daniel Stewart, and he will face stiff opposition from Scottish chargers Bailey Millar and Toby Tyson as they make the trip to Tullyroan. Max Hobson is sure to be another major contender.

The Superstox Tullyroan Challenge Cup is up for grabs as they contest their penultimate meeting at the venue before the upcoming World Final, and they will also have a special Dash for Cash race held over from our last meeting too.

Completing the line up at the Hollytree Rare Breeds Farm sponsored event will be the 2.0 Hot Rods, with the first race leaving the grid at the earlier than usual start time of 1pm.

In our latest points update, Leonard Dunn has been crowned 2017/18 Fast Paintworx DMC Points Champion in the National Bangers. Dunn has had a fantastic season to retain his crown, and will take his place in the Unlimited World Final at Ipswich alongside defending World Champion Steven Bolton who came home second in the standings. Stephen Boyd took third and will also make the trip to Ipswich for the biggest event of the year. Well done to all the drivers after another great season of National Banger racing.

Jordan Rochford has moved to the top of the Maxwell Freight Services NI Points Championship for Lightning Rods. He holds a healthy lead over Tim Hazlett, with Ricky Shaw and Nigel Jackson next in line. Jordan also leads the 2ke Engineering Challenge Series points after Sunday's second round, with Mark Corry and Ricky Shaw completing the top three. After just one meeting in the 2019 World Qualifying Points, novice grader Adam McCann tops the chart after his great meeting on Sunday, with Corry and Rochford tied for second.

After two rounds of the Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI for National Hot Rods John Christie sits proudly on top of the chart, with Carl Sloan and Thomas Dilly in second and third respectively. Finally, Adam McFall holds the lead in the Junior Productions 2ke Engineering Young Guns Series ahead of Sam McNiece and Drew McKeown.

There were thrills and spills aplenty at Tullyroan Oval on Sunday afternoon as the Micro Bangers contested their annual Teams Championship. That fell the way of north west based outfit Bad Company, with Stephen Boyd taking the feature final victory for them. Other final winners at the JMC Mechanical & Construction Ltd sponsored event were Jordan Rochford (Lightning Rods), Lee McCloy (Thunder Rods), Adam Weir (Junior Productions) and Lexi Crooks (Ninja Karts).

The Micro Bangers started quite literally with a bang, with Ian Crowley taking a huge hit on the Tullyroan Bend which unfortunately will see him sidelined for a time - we wish him a speedy recovery from his injuries. Karl Smyth emerged from the chaos to take the win for Bad Company, with him team mates filling out all of the top five places. Heat two also saw an early stoppage, with Leonard Dunn having a huge rollover into turn one. From the restart National Hot Rod star Adam Maxwell surged clear to take the win over William McFaul and Steven Bolton.
The final saw yet more action all around the circuit with Boyd storming through to the victory to seal the Teams Championship for Bad Company A. Maxwell and Boyd rounded out the podium, before Smyth went on to win an entertaining Destruction Derby in which the Bad Company boys turned on each other to entertain the fans. Dunn, McFaul and Boyd celebrated with the Teams Championship trophy with Bad Company A now the undisputed kings of the local Banger scene.

The Lightning Rods were contesting the second round of their 2ke Engineering Challenge Series, with Adam McCann sealing victory in both heats from the white grade. In the opener he just held off Mark Corry at the line, before narrowly beating Scott Cochrane across the stripe in heat two.
Aggregate points from the heats saw McCann and Corry share the front row. Corry immediately hit the front, with Rochford quickly attacking from behind. Rochford then spent numerous laps on the outside in what was a superb dice, before swooping ahead into the lead to take a very impressive win which had the fans applauding around the stadium. Corry and Mark McCambridge completed the top three, the latter in a new car after his recent big crash.

Making a rare Tullyroan appearance were the Thunder Rods, and Londonderry driver Davy Gurney led the opening heat despite heavy pressure from James Goldie. Goldie then clashed with Lee McCloy, which allowed Gurney to break free and take a clear win over McCloy and Joshua McMullan. McCloy took a great win in heat two after an intriguing race as he and Goldie circulated side by side for many laps. McCloy got the verdict at the line, with Goldie and David Baird next up.
McCloy quickly went ahead in the Tullyroan Challenge Cup final, with Andrew McLean gamely trying to stick to his tail over the opening laps. McCloy edged clear and on to an impressive win, with Goldie nipping past McLean late on to snatch second.

It was Round 2 of the 2ke Engineering Young Guns Series for the Junior Productions, with Adam Weir debuting a superb new Vauxhall Corsa C. Aaron Ward led Callum Magill for much of the opening heat, before Magill found a gap on the final lap. The duo raced to the line side by side, with Magill getting the verdict by the slimmest of margins. They both set the pace in the second heat too, before Graham Meek swooped past to take the flag. He was adjudged to have jumped the start though, and was demoted to third place which handed Magill his second win of the day with Ward second once again.
The closed grid final was always going to bring the star men into play, with Meek the early leader until a caution for Ward hard in the wall on turn one. Thankfully there was no serious injury to Aaron, and at the resumption there was some very untidy driving throughout the field. Through the drama Weir emerged ahead to christen his new machine with a fine win, with Meek and Drew McKeown filling out the top three.

Leyton Hughes and Lexi Crooks disputed the lead in the opening Ninja Karts race, until a caution period saw their advantage wiped out. That allowed Max Hobson to get a run on them at the restart, Max taking the win after an impressive drive from the back of the grid. Heat two saw Hughes out front, with Hobson again bearing down fast. The two ran side by side to the chequered flag, with Hughes just getting the verdict by inches at the line for a great win.
In the final Hughes again led Crooks, with a similar story to before as Hobson was closing them down fast once he had worked his way past the others. Lexi managed to slip under Leyton to take up the running and she held out on front to take a fabulous win over Hobson, with Hughes ending up in third.
Many thanks to our meeting sponsors, JMC Mechanical & Construction Ltd

The latest points standings are now available to view online for Superstox, 1300 Stock Cars and Rookie Bangers.

Lee Davison continues to lead the way in the Superstox Mk2 Escort Shells & Spares NI Points Championship, ahead of Sean Mark who is arguable 2018's most improved driver in any of the DMC formulae. In the World Championship Qualifying chart, which will of course form the grid for the World Final at Tullyroan in September, Davison leads the way over Mark and Stephen Stewart.

Robbie Wright sits proudly on top of the 1300 Stock Cars Autoweld of Belfast NI Points Championship, leading teenager Josh McKinstry and Nicky Lowry. In their World Championship qualifying chart Lowry leads the table ahead of Wright and Irish Masters Champion Willie Stewart.

After Saturday night's meeting Stephen Murray continues out front in the DMC Race Promotions Rookie Bangers Points Championship, with Conor Finegan in second and David Mooney third. Only the teams meeting at Aghadowey in September is left in the chase for the championship and those all important World Final slots at Ipswich.
